Oh, brother. A KISS TV? We've seen big bands milk their fame before, but this may be a new low. Or is it a new high? Depends on how you see things, really. Roundtable Concepts has landed a deal with the famed rock band KISS in order to launch the first-ever KISS LED HDTV. It's still really unclear who exactly would want to buy a KISS HDTV, but we're sure a few hardcore fans will make room in their garages.


Amazingly, it's said that KISS actually helped to design this set. We're struggling to believe that, but either way they will be available in 32, 40 and 46-inch sizes. The KISS logo is embellished on the bottom two corners of the casing and an image of the group appears on the screen for the 8 second warm-up period when the set is powered on. The first units will be limited editions and will come in a collectors box, but will they even be able to sell all of these?

The sets are expected to ship in November, just in time for that Christmas gift to the KISS fan in every person's life. Pricing ranges from $818.88 for the 32" to $1,988.88 for the 55" version.

 KISS and Roundtable Concepts Join Forces to Release the First Limited Edition KISS High Definition TVs

LAKE MARY, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Roundtable Concepts announced today that they have reached an agreement with KISS to launch the first ever KISS LED High Definition TVs. Live Nation Merchandise, KISS’s long time licensing agent, brokered the deal.

    “RTC is excited for the opportunity to work with KISS on the “premiere”

With design direction from KISS, the KISS LED HDTVs will be available in 32, 40 and 46-inch sizes. The KISS logo is embellished on the bottom two corners of the casing and an image of the group appears on the screen for the 8 second warm-up period when the set is powered on. The first units will be limited editions and will come in a collectors box.

“KISS again leads the merchandise and licensing world with another industry first with this first ever concert artist branded HD TV,” says Janet Dwoskin, Executive Director of Licensing for Live Nation Merchandise.

“RTC is excited for the opportunity to work with KISS on the “premiere” of this product, a joining of forces between Rock & Roll and the electronics industry. These limited TV’s will be a “must have” for any serious KISS fan,” said Frank Weir of Roundtable Concepts.

The KISS High Def TVs will be available at retail in mid-November and are currently available online at www.kisshdtv.com.

Are there that many people that collect every KISS item that this was a good business decision for RTC? I mean, I remember when KISS was really popular, but that was THIRTY-FREAKING-FOUR-YEARS-AGO.

What's RTC's next great idea? An ABBA television?

I like the Diamond plate look, but the Kiss logo and warm-up screen can Kiss-Off.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Family Guy should totally get the rights to do a feature length version of that. They probably could too, since it's a given that KISS will put their name on anything for money.

What I would love to see is a DVD with band commentary for Kiss Meets The Phantom of the Park. It'd go something like "So tell us Ace... exactly *how* drunk were you in this scene?".

I kid them a lot, but I actually have the first KISS comic (Marvel Comics Super Special #1) in my collection, with an insert printed in REAL KISS BLOOD!
